James Webb researchers find two exceptionally bright early galaxies

Researchers, using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), have found two of the exceptionally bright and farthest galaxies seen to date. These galaxies existed approximately 450 million and 350 million years after the big bang, respectively. The previous record holder is a bright infant galaxy, named GN-z11, which existed just 400 million years after the … Read more

Astronomers may have found some of the very earliest stars thanks to James Webb

Astronomers may have found some of the very earliest stars thanks to James Webb

The University of Toronto team originally thought that the “sparks” might actually be separate objects far past or in front of the Sparkler Galaxy. However, the fact that all three versions of the Sparkler Galaxy show the same dots strongly suggests they are connected. James Webb peers into the ancient past The astronomers believe the … Read more
